(DOVER, England) -- We don't know if Hugh Grant is having money problems, but we do know he skipped out on a bill at a British pub, according to Britain's Daily Mail. The tabloid reports the Four Weddings and a Funeral star recently walked out of a watering hole in the town of Dover without paying his tab.
The owner of The Castle Inn said, "People normally hand over the money when they get the beer but a couple of guys at the bar asked for his autograph and I assume he got distracted."
Grant, who ordered a few beers, racked up a $9 bill, but the owner is taking the mistake in stride, saying, "If he does it all round the country then it's a great scam to get free drinks but if this was a one off I will put it down to an honest mistake."
It's unclear if Grant ever returned to The Castle Inn to pay his debt.
